What our parents are saying

“The school encourages each child to be creative, by both in class participation and homework assignments. Furthermore, the teachers are always supportive of each child to learn at their own pace, by providing a framework, and some demonstration, but most importantly, lots of encouragement. Excellent school and excellent staff!”

“Great school! By far the best drawing school we’ve ever tried. Among all after school programs, this drawing class is my daughter’s favorite. She is enjoying teacher’s passions & inspiration very much. Because of the small size of each class, kids received more personalized instruction. My little one is 4yr old now, can’t wait to send her to CalColor too!”

“My boy goes this school for 3 years already. He loves it and learns a lot from every single class. The class has great mix of different art areas, from oil painting, water coloring to clay and drawings. It is very important to me to let kids to explore and experience diverse art styles. The staff here guide and evoke students creativity step by step. It is a fun, knowledgeable and friendly place. It is a wonderful place to explore beauty of art using your eyes and fingers.”

"Recommend this place! My daughter started to learn drawing in this place for three years. We are so lucky to find a place nearby and my daughter loves the teacher here in her class. She is more focus on and patient than before which is the magic power of drawing. The teacher respects the uniqueness and creativity of each kid, and Ms. Chun is a peach among kids. There is no doubt that professional and communicative teachers are our primary focus of our decision-making. Multiple choices for different levels and skills."

"We are very happy with CalColor Academy. Teachers are patient and caring. They focus on encouraging kids to explore and develop in a guided way, rather than being accurate. The weekly projects are fun and well designed. My daughter has been attending the classes for a year now. Had classes with various teachers in both Cupertino and San Jose sites. She absolutely loves going to classes and has developed very good connection with the teachers."



“In my opinion, Calcolor Academy is a five-star art school for young artists. My older son started his art exploring experience in Lan’s art studio, which is the precursor of Calcolor Academy. Since last year, both my boys have joined Calcolor. We really like their curriculum which allows kids to try different materials and appreciate famous artists’ masterpieces. Calcolor encourage kids to express their own ideas. In class, young artists use all different colors, shapes and compositions to express the same topic.”
